本文主要讲述了社交网站和隐私之间的各个方面。作者尝试研究在跨文化差异下个人信息共享的社交网站的和印度和英国的大学生的在线隐私的各个方面。首先,本研究要求学生用他们的态度来进行关于社交网络上分享个人信息和隐私问题的调查 ,并且通过研究他们的沟通模式来寻求对这一行为更好的理解。本研究的重点放在识别的共性、沟通的模式和态度的差异。
I propose to conduct a research on the topic- “A cross-cultural comparison of privacy and communication on Social Networking Sites between India and United Kingdom”.


My research will try to examine the cross cultural differences in the context of sharing personal information on “Social Networking Sites” (SNSs) and the various aspects of online privacy between the college students in India and the United Kingdom. To begin with, the research will require the students to complete a paper based survey with a variety of questions regarding their attitudes towards sharing personal information on social networks and privacy. It will also seek to better understand the behavioural issues by studying their communication pattern. The emphasis of this research will remain on identifying the commonalities and differences in the communication patterns and attitudes towards privacy between the Indian and UK students by conducting an empirical research.

Literature Framework

We define social network sites as web-based services that allow individuals to (1) construct a public or semi-public profile within a bounded system, (2) articulate a list of other users with whom they share a connection, and (3) view and traverse their list of connections and those made by others within the system. The nature and nomenclature of these connections may vary from site to site.

While we use the term "social network site" to describe this phenomenon, the term "social networking sites" also appears in public discourse, and the two terms are often used interchangeably. We chose not to employ the term "networking" for two reasons: emphasis and scope. "Networking" emphasizes relationship initiation, often between strangers. While networking is possible on these sites, it is not the primary practice on many of them, nor is it what differentiates them from other forms of computer-mediated communication (CMC).
What makes social network sites unique is not that they allow individuals to meet strangers, but rather that they enable users to articulate and make visible their social networks. This can result in connections between individuals that would not otherwise be made, but that is often not the goal, and these meetings are frequently between "latent ties" (Haythornthwaite, 2005) who share some offline connection. On many of the large SNSs, participants are not necessarily "networking" or looking to meet new people; instead, they are primarily communicating with people who are already a part of their extended social network. To emphasize this articulated social network as a critical organizing feature of these sites, we label them "social network sites."(责任编辑:BUG)
